How to Use Your Camera: Focus, Sensor and Lens

Steve Kozak M.Photog.Cr., CPP

Once again, PPA Instructor Steve Kozak gets back to basics – after all, without the fundamentals, you don’t have much!

In this class, Steve gives an easy-to-understand, straightforward overview of your camera, focusing specifically on sensors, making lens selection and choosing focus settings. In this class, Steve will:

  • Help you understand the difference between RAW and JPG related to capture size.
  • Teach the mechanics of full-frame and cropped-frame sensor cameras and how this relates to your lens.
  • Examine the differences between telephoto, normal and wide-angle lenses and which is best for you to use when.

Whether you’re in the market for a camera or just want to know how to better use what you have, this class is one a good photographer can’t miss!

We value your feedback and want to know how we can improve. Please share your thoughts about the class here.
